The Little Android (The Lunar Chronicles, book 0.6) by Marissa Meyer
The Little Android is a retelling of The Little Mermaid, set in the world of The Lunar Chronicles by New York Times-bestselling author Marissa Meyer.
When android Mech6.0 saves the life of a handsome hardware engineer, her body is destroyed and her mechanics discover a glitch in her programming. Androids aren’t meant to develop impractical reasoning or near-emotional responses…let alone fall in love.
This was amazing! Again I have my fears about Meyers lack of development as to what the people and environment look like. Basic fleshing out. I'll admit that it is a step up from both Glitches and Cinder.
At first I thought this was Iko's story. Nope. This is about Mecha6.0, who I hope will show up in later books. Or I wonder if other characters from this short will. Either way I adored it.
The story is riveting and it's always a sci-fi favorite of mine. Can artificial intelligence become human. What gives a human the right to deny said AI life because it has evolved. This is a sweet love story. A love triangle to be exact. It shows that a machine can even achieve truer emotions than most humans. The ability to sacrifice for the one they love.
Unlike Glitches I highly recommend checking out this one! A brilliant short in the same universe as Cinder. There's even a cameo with THE Cinder making an appearance. If you want to be moved and your mind given a tickle try this out! This short brings up many interesting questions about humanity and love.
Sexual Content: Kissing, talk of escort droids, and overall pretty clean. Some mild jealousy accompanied by some wicked thoughts.
4/5- Great! Really enjoyed it.
